Forgotten Horse Feeder

Forgotten Horse Feeder

Whenever I’m in a doctor’s office, hospital or other medical facility I kill time by looking at the large framed pictures in the hallways and waiting rooms.  Before long, I find myself fantasizing about seeing one of my own photos with my name on fancy tag below.

Saunders Health Services Foundation sponsored a photo contest this past summer,  open to all amateur and professional photographers, hoping to find  suitable  photos to frame and hang on the bare walls of their new medical facility near Wahoo, NE.   A maximum of five entries per person were allowed, with no restrictions on the subject matter.  Up to fifty photos would be chosen.

Last weekend, the Foundation held a reception at the new facility to display the selected photos and announce the winners.  Over 200 entries were submitted.  All but six of the 50 selected photos were on display during the reception;  the First, Second, Third and 3 Honorable Mentions were on easels covered with white sheets.  Commemorative plaques and a check were awarded as the winners’ photos were unveiled.  Four of the five photos I entered were selected and my “Forgotten Horse Feeder” was an Honorable Mention.

What a thrill for me!  I just hope I don’t have to be a patient to see my work on the wall.

    Congratulations Larry!! That’s outstanding and well deserved. You have a gifted eye through the lens, and I love how your pictures tell a story…or lead you to a story. Either way, I enjoy your work and your words. Hope you and Verna have a great Thanksgiving! Chuck
